Subject: A R Mitchell 1921 - 2007

Ron Mitchell died on Thursday, 22 November, of a heart attack. He
had not been in the best of health for some time.

Ron was appointed to the newly established Chair of Numerical
Analysis at the University of Dundee in 1967.
He came from the University of St Andrews,
where he was the main organiser of two conferences, in 1965 and 1967,
which continued in Dundee until this year as a biennial series of
conferences on numerical analysis. Ron did important work on
numerical methods for solving partial differential equations,
supervised many students and post-docs and was highly
regarded for his influence on the subject.
The development of the numerical analysis group in Dundee
was a direct consequence of his leadership and vision.

But he will also be remembered for his human qualities,
his magnetic personality and his marvellous sense of humour.

Further biographical information can be found at

He is another numerical analyst who will be greatly missed.
